LCP Academy

Welcome to The LCP Academy, a virtual study space welcoming students of all backgrounds to join us in the intellectual pursuit of academic philosophy. Here we provide the same quality educational services offered by elite philosophy departments -and more – without the pomp and circumstance. Our programming is free and open to the public, and we have a little something for everybody. Whether you’re new to philosophy or a seasoned researcher, we invite you to come study with us.

As you peruse our prefatory material, and find yourself wanting more, consider becoming a member of The LCP Academy. Membership is donation-based and free for those who find themselves in a burdensome financial circumstance. As a member, you will be as a student under our tutelage; receiving access to our private database of valuable philosophical resources – which further supplement our programming and consultation services – quarterly email updates, special announcements and invitations, as well as opportunities to determine the direction of our organization.

All we ask of our members is that they abide by our axioms, abstain from misusing our database,* and have fun as they work through the challenges that academic philosophy poses for us, both personally and collectively. To become a member of The LCP Academy, just fill out this form: This Form.
